We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Claire to the Uptown faculty for the 2017-2018 Season:

Claire began dancing when she was ten years old at Northern California Dance Conservatory (NCDC), under Jen Bradfor and Theodore Constant. At age thirteen, Claire enrolled at the Houston Ballet Academy, and trained there for three and a half years on a merit scholarship. During her time at HBA, she danced choreography by Ben Stevenson, Claudio Munoz, Oliver Halkowich, and Stanton Welch including ‘Ladies’ (soloist), ‘Long and Winding Road,’ ‘Paquita’ (pas de trois), and ‘Don Quixote’ (pas de quatre). Some of her favorite performances include the solo in Jane Weiner’s ‘Pink Ribbons Project’, Clara in Sacramento Ballet’s Nutcracker, and the Peasant pas de deux variation from ‘Swan Lake ‘at Houston Ballet’s Solo Night. Claire joined UDCII in 2016 and had the opportunity to tour with them to Austria for the Young Tanzsommer Dance Festival. Claire started teaching Pre-K ballet at Uptown Dance Centre in 2016-2017 school year, and you will see her more in classes in 2017-2018 school year!
